Grupo Fertiberia acquires Trichodex

Share this article

Spain-based fertilizer producer Grupo Fertiberia has acquired Trichodex, a tech-based company with headquarters in Seville.

Trichodex’s products are based on patented bioprocesses, through the selection of microorganisms for producing bioactive components that improve the yield and protection of crops. Founded in 1991, the company markets its products in a dozen countries in Europe and Latin America.

“Combining Trichodex’s biotechnology and Grupo Fertiberia’s innovative product development will provide farmers with cutting-edge sustainable tools to improve their crops,” said Javier Goñi, president of Grupo Fertiberia. He added the acquisition enhances the company’s plant nutrition offering in terms of biofertilizers and biostimulants, and broadens its portfolio with microorganism-based advanced biocontrol solutions.

Together with the planned complete decarbonization of its product portfolio, more than 50 percent of Grupo Fertiberia sales now come from smart fertilizers which it develops at the Agroenvironmental Technology Centre (ATC) of the University of Seville.

Grupo Fertiberia, founded in 1995, has been owned by Triton Partners since 2020.
